Schwartz Insurance Group announced a $45,000 donation from the 2008 Buddy Schwartz Memorial Classic to The Dream Factory.
Buddy Schwartz was an avid golfer and committed supporter of The Dream Factory. Add the fact that significant contributions will now make a difference in the lives of children in his honor – that defines success, according to the Schwartz Insurance Group.
Title sponsors for the 2008 outing were Schwartz Insurance Group, The Jean and Bernard Trager Foundation and Republic Bank. Additional major sponsors included Almost Family, Heaven Hill Distilleries, Louis T. Roth Fund and Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs. Nearly 100 golfers and dozens of other sponsors and donors helped make this event successful.
The Buddy Schwartz Memorial Classic is a 501(c)(3) organization. All net proceeds benefit the local chapter of The Dream Factory, a 501(c)(3) organization operated largely by volunteers. The Dream Factory’s mission is to grant dreams to local children, aged 3-18, diagnosed with critical or chronic illnesses.
